This spice is loaded with antioxidants, which as most people know,
help with everything from fighting disease to protecting your body against the effects of aging. But maybe more importantly, studies have shown, that cinnamon may improve insulin sensitivity, an important hormone that plays a key role in the process of storing fat. And the more you improve your insulin sensitivity, the more you can control your blood sugar and enjoy simple carbohydrates. Most studies have shown that adding about 1/2 teaspoon is sufficient. Consider adding cinnamon to your coffee, protein shakes, oatmeal, or apples.
